Summer Art Camp

About Summer Art Camp

Harwood Art Center, located in downtown Albuquerque, offers multi-disciplinary summer art camp for youth entering grades 1-9. Since 1996, Harwood’s summer programing has fostered creativity and curiosity in young artists of all skill levels. We offer four two-week sessions throughout June and July with full and half day options.  

At Harwood Summer Art Camp, campers in grades 1 - 9 will immerse themselves in the arts with a group of inspired peers and accomplished instructors. They will experience a range of exciting activities in a positive, supportive atmosphere. From ceramics and painting, to theater and music, imaginations are unleashed. Summer Art Camp opens doors to new experiences and creative innovation, engaging students in the visual and performing arts. It is an adventure your children will remember for years to come!

OUR STAFF

Our Teaching Artists and Guides share our commitment to lifelong learning and creative expression, and they all have experience working with children. Our Teaching Artists are accomplished in their diverse fields and maintain professional artistic careers. Teaching Artists and / or Guides are present throughout all activities, providing enrichment, support and supervision at all times.

LUNCH

Students are required to bring their own sack lunch and snack (one for morning and one for afternoon) with them to camp. We are a nut free campus, so please don't send nuts, nut butters or any snacks with nuts in them. In the past we have been able to offer sack lunches for purchase through the Harwood Cafe. The cafe is currently in transition and we aren't sure yet it this will be an option. Once we know, we will post more information here and send out an email to all registered families.

HARWOOD STORIES

Current Studio Artist

Harwood Art Center is my sanctuary and my connection to the community.  It’s unusual and amazing to have these opposing forces satisfied in one place.  The Harwood community enriches my life because of studio artists, staff, teachers, and exhibits. Through classes at the Harwood Art Center and mentoring from influential New Mexico artists, I began painting in 2005.  My paintings have been included in exhibits at the Albuquerque Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe, Mariposa Gallery in Albuquerque, and Patina Gallery, in Santa Fe.
